- "Cap'n got a special someone he can't forget. What's more, she's said to be the queen of some great land."
- — A Piratian
Cap'n was a sea-faring man who became trapped along with his ship and crew in Labrynna's Sea of Storms and had originally been a native of that land. Link must trade Cap'n the Zora Scale for the Tokay Eyeball to help him and his crew escape to Holodrum.
It is revealed later in the story of the two games that he had been the lover of Queen Ambi, who had originally ordered the construction of the Black Tower in order to search for him after he left on an adventure to explore the unknown seas beyond Labrynna's coast and went missing.
In the end, Queen Ambi is reunited with Cap'n in the subterranean country of Subrosia when she is sent on a soul-searching journey to the land of Holodrum by Nayru, the Oracle of Ages. It is presumed that he returns with Ambi to Labrynna and that they build a family together, eventually leading to the birth of Ralph.
Cap'n can be found in the House of Pirates in Subrosia. His ship has become marooned between worlds, half being stuck in Subrosia and half being stuck in Samasa Desert. After Link recovers his bell, he and his crew board the stern of the ship and sail up to Holodrum. Shortly after they dock at the Western Coast.
Seeing as the Piratians are very similar to the pirates from Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, it is possible that they are indeed one and the same, and that Cap'n is Captain Stalfos. This seems plausible due to the striking similarities in appearance between the two characters. One major counterargument to this notion, however, is that Cap'n's hook is on his right hand, while Captain Stalfos' is on his left.
